    Kraken Rum

    Being the start of baseball season I have had ESPN on for over 24 hours. This has led me to watch numerous commercials for Kraken rum. Until now I had never heard of the stuff, but now I want some. Has anyone had some before?

    I've never tried it either, but I love the presentation of the bottle. I've tried looking for it at a few places, but they weren't carrying it at the time. I believe this has received above average reviews.

    I may have to give it a try, it's going to be hard to pull me away from Ron Zacapa 23 though.

    That stuff is prominently displayed in a lot of stores near me, but I've not tried it yet. The fact that I really loved the packaging and its affordability made me think the liquid inside may be sub par.

    If V is correct about the reviews, I will pick up a bottle next time I'm at the store.
    That which is falling, should also be pushed

    I've had it! It's pretty good. You wont taste any wood or aging. It's sweet and spicy; heavy on the molasses. I'd say this would make a tasty rum and coke but it might be too sweet for by itself on the rocks. Spicier than Capt Morgan, closer to Goslings. Smooth and easy drinking.

    hope it helps

    The spot I work at has if for 19.99 of 750ml. Thats including everything but sales tax. For the price its rather good.

    +1 on this rum being a mixer. IMHO it isn't very drinkable neat or on rocks,
    way too heavy/sweet.

    Ray, it will NEVER pull you away from Zacapa Centenario 23, though I
    haven't found a rum I like more neat than that one.

    I prefer Kilo Kai, but Kraken is a solid second for me. I almost exclusively mix rum, as both are fairly sweet to drink straight.

    Re: Kraken Rum

    I bought some the other day and made a drink with it yesterday. It does make a solid rum and diet coke (it may be a bit sweet with regular coke). As many in this thread have said, this is definitely a rum that needs to be mixed.

    Jim said it all.

    I'll be honest, I was a bit dissapointed. I expected more flavor, and I thought it was over powered.
    Be it a Opus X or a Swisher Sweet, if you like it, smoke it. Cause it's all about the ride!

    Great advertising on this product, but as far as spiced rums go, not for me. You definitely don't want to drink this one straight, but is pretty good with coke, ginger ale, ginger beer, and even Dr. Pepper. If you are looking for a good spiced rum with the flavor and a kick that will hold up to being mixed, go with Sailor Jerry's. I've tried most spiced rums on the market, Sailor Jerry's is by far the best all around spiced rum IMO.

    For you guys that like Zacapa (A little too sweet for me), expand a bit and try El Dorado 15 or older and Angostura 1824. Still has a little sweetness that you like, just not as heavy.
